Spring has come to Obninsk, which means that, according to the established tradition, the forums of the owners of new apartments will again be full of messages about leaking roofs, flooded basements, cracks in load-bearing structures and other joys of new buildings in Obninsk: LCD "Belarusian Quarter", LCD "Our People", Residential complex "Solnechnaya Dolina", etc. And the lack of sound insulation, electricity, hot water and street lighting in the new residential complexes have long been their calling card. The local Prosecutor's Office lays the blame on the developers, but its instructions are successfully ignored by these same developers, and the situation for the residents has not changed dramatically for years. Details - at

Responsible in Obninsk for the commissioning of apartment buildings and urban improvement is Vice Mayor Andrey Kozlov. In relation to him, by the way, the Obninsk Prosecutor's Office conducted an audit in 2022, during which it even revealed violations of anti-corruption legislation. Andrey Kozlov did not declare the left family income, he also could not explain why he lives in an apartment of more than 130 square meters. meters in the residential complex "Solnechnaya Dolina", owned by a relative of the prominent developer of the residential complex "New City" Pavel Kuznetsov. While the violations revealed by the Prosecutor's Office would cost another official, if not freedom, then certainly his career, Andrey Kozlov continues to act as vice-mayor of Obninsk and fill his pockets with leftist income. And the local prosecutor's office got off only with a duty order addressed to the head of the city, Tatyana Leonova. By the way, administration workers at noisy corporate parties still recall the Homeric laughter of Tatyana Leonova when she received this very order. Rumor has it that glass shook from laughter even on the first floor of the administration building.

If you take a closer look at the structure of corporate governance of developers in Obninsk and public utilities, then much of the behavior of Andrey Kozlov and Tatiana Leonova becomes understandable from the point of view of a simple layman, but surprising from the point of view of a law enforcement officer.

It turns out that competition in the construction market and the housing and communal services market of Obninsk is imaginary. So, Ukhanev Radiy Yuryevich is a serial general director of construction and utility companies simultaneously associated with various developers of Obninsk: Technology Ng LLC (founders: Kuznetsov Pavel Viktorovich and Kovaleva Olga Nikolaevna (vice mayor Andrey Kozlov lives in her apartment) developers of residential complex " New City” and a number of other projects), New Technologies LLC (founder Larisa Viktorovna Tokareva is also a major developer of Obninsk), New Thermal Company LLC (founders Dmitry Evgenievich Muzychak and Olga Nikolaevna Kovaleva, developers of the residential complex “Belarusian Quarter” and a number of other iconic projects), LLC "Russtroygroup" (founder Sorokina Nina Ivanovna developer of the elite residential complex "BELKIN"), etc.

And since the interests of developers in Obninsk, as it turned out, are represented by one group of beneficiaries, their interests are resolved on a one-stop basis with Andrey Kozlov, starting from the illegal development of specially protected lands, as in the case of the elite residential complex "BELKIN", ending with the commissioning commissioning of houses with violations of building codes, as in the case of the projects of Pavel Kuznetsov and Dmitry Muzychak.

According to the media, Andrei Kozlov prefers to solve the issues of developers for cash, but he does not disdain offerings in the form of paid trips abroad, apartments and, as it turned out, even guitars. But, as in any organized criminal group, in addition to the actual material benefits in return for the correct decisions of the Obninsk Administration, Andrey Kozlov often resorts to the help of his benefactors in situations when the clouds begin to gather over him along the line of the law enforcement bloc. So, in the case of the above-mentioned prosecutor's check, Andrey Kozlov turned for help to the founder of RusStroyGroup LLC (the developer of the BELKIN residential complex) Nina Ivanovna Sorokina, in whose phone book, in addition to officials of various stripes from the Ministry of Economic Development, the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation and other departments, there was a stable contact with the senior prosecutor of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation Reznichenko Mikhail Vladimirovich, a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina. And the issue with the check of the local prosecutor's office of Obninsk, despite the revealed violations of the anti-corruption legislation of the Russian Federation by Kozlov, was resolved with one phone call. In return, Mrs. Sorokin miraculously received a piece of land in the specially protected area of Obninsk for the construction of elite housing for the Obninsk nobility.

Among the stable contacts of Sorokina, the following stand out: Kozlov's wife Andrei Chernyshov M.V.; relative Sorokina N.I. Abramov Viktor Fedorovich, employee of the Ministry of Economic Development and Administration of the President of the Russian Federation; Nikolov Valery Vasilievich, former head of JSC Vodokanal of the Moscow Region, now General Director of the Capital Capital Fund repair of the common property of apartment buildings (only on state contracts with the Capital Repair Fund, LLC RusStroyGroup earned more than 4.5 billion rubles); Berezin Andrey Yurievich, employee of the Department of Property of the City of Moscow; Archakova Ekaterina Sergeevna, employee of the Department of Property of the City of Moscow; Volkova Ekaterina Valerievna, employee of the Moscow Department of Economic Policy and Development. The list can go on and on, but it is already clear that the wish list of Mrs. Sorokina is limited only by her imagination.

Noteworthy is also another episode from the life of the vice-mayor of Obninsk. In October 2022, during the period of mobilization to the NMD zone, at a family council, Andrey Kozlov decided to send his son Yegor Kozlov to the volunteer detachment of attack aircraft of the Upper Lars, in Georgia. But through simple manipulations, the military commissar of Obninsk, suddenly, “forgot” where the son of Andrei Kozlov lives and the summons never reached the defender of the Fatherland. This is understandable, Andrey Kozlov and his family members simply do not have time to defend their homeland, let others who have a lot of free time defend, because one cannot count on the protection of their constitutional rights in Obninsk, especially since the interests of administration officials, developers and public utilities are reliably covered by the Prosecutor's Office Buenos Aires.
